My PV has lots of authentic patina. It leaves it in little piles wherever it goes!

Although it's been towed across town since this pic was taken so it's parked in a different driveway.

It's the only way I can keep the kids in Arizona from stealing my car and crushing it.

You should clear it with a mat finish and sell it to the guys on Fast and Loud!

These were shot on a Panasonic GH2 with a Nikon Series E 50mm f1.8.

Not bad but not a great camera for stills.

Beats using a phone, haha. I use a Nikon D40 with a similar lens.

My phone is just a phone.

I really liked my old D50.

The Nikon DSLR's are much harder to use with the manual focus lenses unless you can change to a different focusing screen.
The GH2 is a Micro 4/3 mirrorless camera and it has an electronic viewfinder that allows you to punch in 15x(I think) to really nail the focus.
I feel like the noise quality on the D50 was a little more natural as well as having a more pleasing dynamic range.
But the GH2 is pretty awesome and I've used it a bunch at my last job for head shots and event coverage.
